Staff Reviews


Ten short stories with no recurring characters, whose settings include Noah’s Ark, an archeological expedition, and Heaven; a little essay; and a reproduction of a painting. It doesn’t sound like a novel, much less a history of the world, but it really is both.

— From Ken T.'s Picks

Description


This is, in short, a complete, unsettling, and frequently exhilarating vision of the world, starting with the voyage of Noah's ark and ending with a sneak preview of heaven!
